term. when barack obama was elected the first time, they summed it up with this head line. "black man given nation's worst job." that was for the start of his first term. might be more apt for second term. the second term is when the job turns out to be a difficult job for presidents. if you go back to woodrow wilson in his second term trying to join the league of nations, that was pretty much the end of wilson. that was his second term. when it was truman in his second term during the korean war, he fired general mcarthur. the country responded by throwing parades for the general who got fired. and harry truman left office with approval ratings that dick cheney would kill for, but for everyone else would see that as a disaster. second terms are almost always seen as a disaster, then at least when the big disappointments happen and often the failures. when the soviet union beat us, when the soviet union beat the united states to put the first space satellite into orbit, when no nation had put something like that -- up in space and had it stick there and the soviets did it first with s

won re-election fairly handily, but so did republican incumbents in the house. these are some stunning statistics that gerrymandering has created. 93% of the 205 house republicans who ran for re-election won. 88% of them won with 55% of the vote or more. the president received between 51% and 52% of the vote. once the votes are finally all counted. and even though everyone in washington may be saying the right thing, those facts make forging a deal structurally very difficult. on monday senator dick durbin admitted what we've been hearing behind the scenes. very little has been accomplished on negotiations on the staff level. >> now for ten days not much has happened. there's been a big thanksgiving break. a lot of turkey and stuffing. but now let's get back to business. >> although the white house said they remain optimistic, there doesn't appear to be a plan for another leadership meeting until progress is made between the white house team negotiating a deal that's led by secretary geithner but the house republicans, specifically in boehner's shop. in the meantime, to create the appe

the iranians, remember they have a presidential election coming up, and if there's a deal cut and it's associated to someone who might be running for president, you better believe it. the opponents will try to attack it and try to undermine them. we've seen that will before. this is an executive issue. it's also an united nations issue and a p-5 plus one. i think the president of the united states comes in and says, look, we have the leaders of france and britain and china and russia and the u.n. and we're trying to prevent nuclear weapons, you know, you should probably not meddle in this. that's a winnable argument. i think particularly coming out of this -- obama out of a strong election. no one like gaddafi. no one liked libya. no one liked the soviets. it's doable. >> to partially answer the same question. the issue for many in congress is whether this negotiation quote-unquote allows iran to continue enriching at the 3.5% level or not. the historical position of the united states going back to the early 2000's has been that there should be a suspension of all enrichment as a con

the election, what's next for immigration reform? ray suarez asks texas senator kay bailey hutchison and illinois representative luis gutierrez. >> warner: and on the "daily download," we look at how the obama administration is re-using digital information gathered for the campaign to rally support now. >> brown: that's all ahead on tonight's "newshour." major funding for the pbs newshour has been provided by: and with the ongoing support of these institutions and foundations. and... this program was made possible by the corporation for public broadcasting. and by contributions to your pbs station from viewers like you. thank you. >> brown: washington was a-whirl today with more talk of avoiding the much-discussed fiscal cliff. but as november wound down, the president suggested an agreement on taxes and spending could come in time for the holidays. >> i believe that both parties can agree on a frame work that does that in the coming weeks. in fact my hope is to get this done before christmas. >> you know me, i was born with the glass half full. i'm an optimist. >> brown: hopeful sig
agree with with what julia said. i think that you have to interpret these elections in two ways. on one side, you have the independent versus unionist vote. and in that way, i think you can safely say there has for the been a great deal of change in the sense that the big push towards pro independence parties are as asked for didn't happen. on the other side, you can clearly say that in the left versus right, there has been just a move towards the left. and in particular with parties towards pushed against austerity cuts. so i think the way to on interpret that is that it will be hard for an independence referendum, although he has already announced he will do so. and he had to do so ban he has always announced that he will do this whatever results come out of of the elections. but to do so, he will have to form a government with the left erc party, which he's fiercely against austerity. so i think that for rajoy, all this means that probably he is strengthened in the and itity independent side of the story, but also he will find it very hard to push further austerity that is needed to
the post-election changes in the house of representatives. >> woodruff: would building walls protect cities like new york from flooding after major storms? hari sreenivasan examines that as part of our "coping with climate change" series. >> as people continue to clean up from hurricane sandy, we look at what it could take to keep this damage from happening again. >> brown: ray suarez updates the health care reform law, as the obama administration issues new rules governing what insurers must cover. >> woodruff: and we close under the bright lights of high school football, where a trail-blazing coach puts her players' studies ahead of practice. >> you won't be playing football. we like to think we have a lot of life to live so you will too and you need to prepare for that. football is kind of just icing on the >> brown: that's all ahead on tonight's newshour. major funding for the pbs newshour has been provided by: >> bnsf railway. >> and by the alfred p. sloan foundation. supporting science, technology, and improved economic performance and financial literacy in the 21st century. and with
, it went very well. the problem was that was before thanksgiving after the election. and since that time, there's been little progress with the republicans, which is a disappointment to me. >> well, the market didn't exactly like what they heard there either. the dow lost nearly 90 points today. much of it in reaction to harry reid's dismal statement. i got an e-mail with it all in caps, the market is coming in on these headlines from harry reid. this matters, every word they say matters and white house press secretary jay carney was on the defense today. he pointed out as he had done yesterday that the president spoke on the phone with senate majority leader harry reid and john boehner over the weekend. and besides carney says, the president has to talk directly to the american people. >> it is vitally important that ordinary americans actively engage in this debate because the outcome of these negotiations and the hopeful product of these negotiations are the product that we hope emerges from these negotiations will profoundly affect their lives. >> so is the president, the missing ing
in a swing state, the co2 question played a major role in the election concerning the coal mining question. to avoid any other misunderstanding, i know what it means to close a coal mine for 35,000 inhabitants, most of them employed in the coal mine. when you close down the coal mine, it was an economic disaster. but today, the coal mine is closed down and you have an economically flourishing city. so it is possible to step away from a traditional industrial structure, with public financing and support to go into another direction. therefore we need more money in the european budget. [laughter] mali and congo, i set a lot about our common commitment, and where the values are challenged, wherever terrorism and terrorist groups try to destroy countries, to bring countries to the state of a failed state, as a basis for terrorist groups to export their terrorism, we must act. somalia is a symbol. what is happening in mali is a direct result of the libyan revolution. it is now distributed in the whole region. not only mali. a at a meeting with the king of morocco to tell me that for his country

weeks after the longest, most expensive and most exhausting election in u.s. history, troubled eyes are turning this morning to 2016 speculation as it begins over the next batch of candidates. republican up and comer jeb bush jr. says his dad needs to make a run for the white house. >> your dad going to run for president? >> i don't know. no comment. i certainly hope so. >> which is it, i don't know or no comment? >> you said. i don't know. no comment, and i hope so. which are all kind of contradictory. you hope so but -- >> full loaf of bread there. >> word out of florida is jep bush is getting his ducks in a row for 2016. jeb jr. also weighed in on marco rubio, another potential 2016 candidate. earlier this week rubio passed on a question on the age of the earth, calling it one of the great mysteries. not to scientists, they say it's 4.5 billion years old. jeb called rubio's response a head-scratching type of answer. senator rand paul of kentucky is ready to follow in his pop's footsteps and make a run for the top spot, but the 2016 republican field may be missing out on one famou
. >> bill: allall right. now, when i pointed that out on election night that people were breaking for the president and a large part of the reason was entitlements, 'cause the below 30,000, 63% vote for barak obama, gave him 7 million in plurality and he won by 3 1/2 million popular votes. when i pointed that out. the "washington post" editorial board attacked me. my question to you as a psychiatrist now, the facts are on my side. i proved the case beyond a reasonable doubt using the facts. the exit polling, and all of the facts that we presented last night and tonight. why are they attacking me so vehemently? what is wrong with telling the american people what's going on? >> well, look, the fact is democrats did get their demographic, but that doesn't prove that they got the demographic because they're getting more stuff. i think traditionally democrats have been getting their demographic for a very long time. that skew in social class is to who gets the vote, democrat or republican, has been around for a long time. i think it's a plausible theory. i don't think it's a proven fac

talks to us live. three weeks removed from election today and suddenly americans are being hit by an on shraugt of neon sthraut of new campaigning. a look at the white house now where press jay carney just began today's briefing. he reiterated that president obama will not sign legislation that extends lower tax rates for the wealthy in particular. that comes as top republicans in the senate draws a line in the sand saying political ideology cannot rule the negotiations. >> the only balanced approach is one that includes real and lasting reforms. so republicans have stepped out of our comfort zone, we've been clear about what we'll do and what we won't, and yet we remain at an impasse. leading us to why ask why? because a vocal minority on the hard left continues to argue from the leaders of their party from the president on down that democrats in washington should do absolutely nothing about short term, or long term spending problems. this is the thelmand louise crowd, the ones who dream about higher taxes and bigger government it will pay for, regardless of the impact on jobs

today. can't get enough romance in my day. >>> the white house election shows where the people stand on the economy, the fiscal cliff. but today we have some very specific answers to very interesting questions. cnn's political editor paul steinhauser joins me live. first of all, paul, are people paying attention to the fiscal cliff? >> it seems they are. look at this, a cnn national poll out this morning. and we asked, what will the effect be on the country if it goes over the fiscal cliff? nearly 7 in 10 say major problems for the country, maybe even a crisis, with only about 3 in 10 saying minor and no problems. and john, personally, three quarters tell us they think their pocket books will be affected if the country falls off the fiscal cliff. >> we've heard both sides fighting. what do americans say they want to see in the deal? >> they want compromise, and what do they specifically want? look at these numbers. two-thirds say they want spending cuts, and some tax increases combined. only about 3 in 10 say just spending cuts. and john, it's interesting. when we asked just republic

to the election every outlet came up with a short list of the cabinet for mitt romney come in for president obama. when you talk about setting up this agency council how do you guard against some sort of volatility in the national energy policy from the changing administration and the policies put in place by one administration carried over the success reforms. >> one person has to take the recommendations seriously and consider that this has merit as the president in the issues i had the the president gave significance and this could be very significant move by the administration is taken seriously by everybody in the government and that in itself was a tremendous incentive to coordination. >> there will also be volatility in a second term there will be changes that have been there for four years or ready to get out but also this isn't something that would be done instantaneously i don't think it would be done under our proposal until the end of the fourth quarter given times so that would be available to the administration i don't think it would be that big a problem although if you had the who
and before the iranian election? >> no, i have not given up on it at all. but i would like to be more clear in terms of our standpoint , it is not necessarily successful in those options, but other options, what options we really have in the negotiation? and to assess this in terms of political, strategic, and even moral abilities with what it is that should determine the nature of our own conduct. i would like to avoid a situation in which someone comes to us and says, a year has passed. there is no achievement. we want new red lines. and we are now in the danger zone. what would you have to do? and i'm not sure we have to do it. that is more likely if we have some alternative. all options are on the table. and i think the meaningful alternative is a combination of a kind of, if you will, a set of human rights policies towards the soviet union in the mid- mid-70s with, at the same time, an effort to reassure those in the region that are not more portable to intimidation or aggression and to convince the iranians that they would first have to take all the resources the united states possess
. remember how quickly he threw away his 70% approval rating from the 2008 election, when he went with the spend, spend, spend approach. he's now walking in with a 50-plus percent approval rating and going for tax and spends, tax and spend. i think he'll find his approval, begin to continue its way down from where it was when he first ran. and secondly, the republicans won the house of representatives, and they won it after redistricting, which means they're all running in the same districts for ten years, so, that republican majority is here for a long time and it's fairly comfortable, they're not going to be pushed back or bullied around. the president's gone in four years, the republican house is there for ten, and they all won, having voted for and debated and discussed and explained, the ryan plan, which is entitlement reform and tax reform. it is a tougher house than we've ever had capable. >> grover, i'm looking at your picture in the new york times of all places, your picture is in the new york times yesterday, saying-- i can't hold it up because, it's there. okay? there h
to clear those levels. we have the ceiling created by the highs. right before the election. let's call that the romney rally which creates a thick wall of resistance to 1450. if we beat the pre-election highs, then there is still one last barrier even though it broke down after the election. every time it would rally, the move would peter out. right now we are out in the same area and then start giving up ground. to get over the symmetry problem the s&p needs to close over 1391 and needs to do it real fast. even though brodin has a constantly positive attitude, the new line in the sand is the november 16th line of 1346. here is the bottom line. based on the reading of the charts, brodin things yesterday's rally was not a flash in the pan. her chart suggests it was perhaps a real bottom. if we go over the fiscal cliff, things are going to get bad. it is good to have the charts or her reading of the charts on the bull side again. "mad money" is back after the break. sometimes what we suffer from is bigger than we think ... like the flu. with aches, fever and chills- the flu's a really bi
elections. as well as a growing pressure from congress as will some u.s. allies in the region against diplomacy. focus shifted to sanctions and tehran responded by further expanding its nuclear program leaving both sides worse off today than they were a few years ago. in the meantime, sanctions have held iranian middle class for the impoverished population while the regime's repression and human rights abuses have continued to intensify and its nuclear program has continued to expand. but a new window for opportunity for diplomacy has opened through obama's convincing real election, and in the next few months, up until the iranian new year, both sides enjoy maximum political space and maneuverability to negotiate effectively. the logic of diplomacy is obvious. it's the only option that can truly resolve the issue. sanctions can cripple iran's economy at the expense of destiny that pro-democracy movement there, but sanctions alone cannot resolve this issue. the military option can set back the program for a year or two but only at the expense of ensuring that eventually iran eventually
-span uses, we never have a democrat and republican -- elected democrat and elected republican debating an issue so the public can see it all in one nutshell. or even get to see over a bottle. you never had anybody rebut. because you are the echo chamber for the gop. let me get to the schools. nobody has been talking about jobs. jobs are the reason most kids go to school, to get a job. and they go get more schooling to get a better job. i know we want to live in a fantasy world where it's you want to be smart -- no,. they invest in themselves to get a return on that investment with a job. we have had 30 years since the reagan administration of supply- side economics. we have signed free trade agreements, no tariffs, their shipping jobs overseas. and we wonder why students don't go to school, because they know they cannot get a job. we have sent the dollar overseas. the older people and sold out the young people. now they claim it is the young people's all, they don't want to learn. host: i will leave it there and go back to what you said about c-span. we do have roundtable discussions f
about hurricane sandy. the republican responses by the newly elected chairwoman of the house republican conference. she also talked about thanksgiving and said republicans were ready to work with president obama to avoid the so-called fiscal cliff. obama talked about of the obama family, i want to wish everybody a very happy thanksgiving. for us, this is a day full of ta family, i want to wish everybody a very happy thanksgiving. for us, this is a day full of family and>> on behalf friends,d football. it is a date to fight the urge to take a nap, at least until after dinner. most of all, it is a time to give thanks for each other and for the bounty we enjoy in this country. that is important this year. we have just emerged from a campaign season that was passionate, noisy, and vital to our democracy. it also required us to make choices. sometimes that led us to focus on what sets us apart rather than ties us together. thanksgiving is a chance to put it all in perspective. to remember that, despite our differences, we are americans first and foremost. today we give thanks for blessings t
around to having another test to this thing. it may be tied to the upcoming election in south korea which is around the 19th december. jenna: you wouldn't be surprised, you're not surprised by hearing about this now? >> no, not at all. they clamor for attention from south korea, from the japanese and from the united states. and this is more about that. they normally, when they get a little rough with the south koreans or do something to spark the anger of the united states usually they get some kind of concession frankly. so it's usually politically motivated to be sure but listen, the central intelligence agency's job is to figure out what their motivation is. the defense department's job is to have the capability to defend against an adversary's military capacity so the defense department takes it very seriously. jenna: let me stop you there because we've been showing what we call, b-roll and different missiles firing off and i want to be clear what type of missile, what type of capability, long-range missile like the one we're saying could be tested would have. can you tell us a little
this many times, presidential elections are referendums on the incumbent party and in that vein such as the case as i believe it is, then you have to say that it's a judge to by the electorate was not a tremendous perhaps lackluster but not so as to make him ineligible for rehiring. second, when the country is in a serious political deadlock of the kind that we are in now and it's happened in our history but it doesn't happen often it generally means that the deadlock is focused on a definition question of america, and the definition question faced in this country is that we are going to go towards a european style of social democracy or more towards the traditional conservative populism of jackson or ronald reagan. third, when the country manages to deal with such a deadlock or change such a deadlock as this it doesn't come to any other means. so you have a lot of red and that may be a good harbinger for your party but it doesn't say anything about how the country is going to move forward in terms of what you promote. so given all of that if you buy any of it, to what extent do
days after the election to resign instead of letting voters select his successor on november 6th. congressman bobby rush the only person who beat barack obama in an election is sticking um for the embattled 47-year-old. >> i don't think that anybody has been duped. i think that that this is a process that no one really knew exactly what was going to happen. >> jackson was under investigation for allegedly skimming campaign funds to remodel his house, among other things. and in a letter to speaker boehner said i am aware of the ongoing federal investigation into my activities and i'm doing my best to address the situation responsibly, cooperate with the investigators and accept responsibility for my mistakes, for they are my mistakes and mine alone. within four days, illinois governor pat quinn is expected to announce the date of a special election to replace expwraction and former congresswoman debby halverson who lost to jackson in a primary this year hasn't ruled out another run. she also made clear she doesn't think much of the nine term congressman. >> i hate to use the word
. it is not something they can get much political profit out of it if you are an elected public official. if you go back to your constituency and say i have sponsored legislation that has improved the evaluation system for federal servants, how many people would be energized by that? i was on a task force on this topic, in a sense, the future of the public service, with senators and congressmen at the federal level. one congressman that i spoke to who was known as one of the ones that were concerned with civil servants, with a proper and effective management of governmental activities. he had been a local level official and was very interested in trying to make his local government very well managed. he sponsored legislation at the federal level to try to improve management in federal operations, support good management. at one point, i asked him, how many congressmen and senators are there that share your commitment to this, are willing to invest to improve management in the federal service? he said, about 10 people that really wanted to help and invest in this. why? people do not get much support for
to get reelected and it's not only the german elections that are around the next corner. everybody has to keep facing their own taxpayers. so i think they'll keep doing it with a combination rather than taking all the bitter medicine. either there is a default or the countries that have given the money have to write-off their debt. on one side or the other, it has to go because obviously greece can't pay back, at least not to the extent that they would have to pay back. they might limp through some measures. there was also talk about an interest rate moratorium for up to ten years. a lowering of interest rates. of course that way you can ease the burden a bit, but ultimately there will have to be a public sector haircut of some sort and a substantial one other than that you can't get any relief from the debt front. >> you're also still in brussels because we have budget talk. let's remind ourselves what david cameron is saying about his opposition to increasing those budgets. >> clearly at a time when we're making difficult decisions at home, it is quite wrong for there to be proposals
